SPECIAL TOWN MEETING 
November 27th, 1935. 



At a legal meeting of the inhabitants of the Town of Chelmsford quali- 
fied to vote in Town affairs, held in the Upper Town Hall at Chelmsford 
Centre on November 27, 1935, at eight o'clock in the evening, the following 
business was transacted, to wit : 

The meeting was called to order by the Moderator, and the Warrant 
was read by Town Clerk Harold C. Petterson. 

Under Article 1 : 

Mr. Roy A. Clough reported for the committee appointed to bring in 
plans and specifications for an addition to the High School. The report 
was as follows : 

April 30, 1935, at a special meeting held in the Town Hall, a proposal 
to authorize the expenditure of $50/000 by the Town of Chelmsford was 
discussed at much length. The object of this outlay of money was the con- 
struction of additions to the High School. At that time it was the con- 
sensus of opinion that we were not sufficiently informed about our actual 
needs, what plans and specifications were best, and what the costs of neces- 
sary changes would amount to. 

Therefor, it was voted that a committee, composed of the School Board 
and four other citizens of the Town, be appointed, and that this group be 
authorized and empowered to study the situation, select plans, and procure 
specifications and cost estimates for an addition to the High School, and 
report their findings at a future town meeting. 

May 8, 1935, this committee, comprising the School Board, James 
Kiberd, Sr., George Armstrong, John Meagher, and Roy Clough, met and 
organized with Roy Clough chairman and James Kiberd, Sr., secretary. It 
was decided that the large increase in our school enrollment had forced 
overcrowding of class rooms and facilities to the point where our plant was 
not operating efficiently or satisfactorily. Thirty to thirty-five children 
were compelled to attempt to work in class rooms designed to accommodate 
twenty. Desks and chairs had to be placed against radiators and under win- 
dows, in fact all around the room in jplaces poorly fitted to allow serious 
effort and attention, and above all, so overtaxing the cubic air content of 
the room that stuffiness and lack of oxygen seriously hampered the primary 
purpose of the building— education. 

Having decided that an actual need for additions did exist, your com- 
mittee made a careful study of previous plans submitted by various archi- 
tects, which were already on file. We felt that Ashton & Huntress, special- 
ists in School Building construction, were the best qualified, and we asked 
them to prepare preliminary plans and sketches, and to submit the necessary 
estimates of the costs of our requirements. The architect submitted three 
different types of plans. Your committee discarded two of these because 
we felt that they did not meet our requirements. The space allotted to class 
rooms was insufficient, the general arrangement unsatisfactory, and, in our 
opinion, certain to be a continual source of trouble and expense to the 

31 



Town. Furthermore, if the Town should be faced later with the necessity 
of further increases in the High School plant these plans would not permit 
it. 

Therefore, these plans which we submit herewith are our choice. They 
provide for six additional class rooms, each to be approximately 22 x 34. 
These rooms have been deliberately planned larger than those now in the 
building, because we all (the committee and the architect) believe that this 
is the wiser size. Experience shows that the smaller room does not best fit 
our needs. These plans do allow for possible future expansion if conditions 
warrant. Sanitary conditions at present are bad, and our plans take this 
into consideration and rectify it. These plans do not spoil the architecture 
and symmetry of our present building but develop it and fill our needs. 

An assembly hall and auditorium, sorely needed space, are the central 
feature, connected with the main building by corridors. We have also 
taken advantage of the twelve foot difference in grade level between the front 
and rear of the building. The plans carry the building down to the lower 
grade, using this space for two class rooms, a lunch room, and a shower 
room for the boys and another for the girls. The basement floor of the 
present building will be extended over the lunch room and will contain the 
combination assembly hall and auditorium with corridors, also class rooms 
as on the ground floor, new teachers' rooms and new toilet rooms. The 
upper part of the combined assembly hall and auditorium, corridors, class 
rooms, teachers' rooms, and new toilet rooms will be on the same level as 
the first floor of the present building. 

Your committee has worked faithfully to meet the needs of the situa- 
tion from all angles, and in completion of our task submit this set of plans, 
sketches and specifications with estimated cost of approximately $120,000.00. 
We are convinced that the need exists, and that these plans fully, adequately 
and economically cover the need. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROY A. CLOUGH. 



It was voted to receive this report and place the same on file. 

Mr. Gabriel Audoin moved that this report be pub'ished in the Town 
Report and that this article be laid on the table until the Annual Town 
Meeting in 1936. On request of Mr. Edward J Robbins, Mr. Audoin with- 
drew his motion, and Mr. Donald Knapp made a motion that this article be 
dismissed, and it was so voted. 

This meeting voted to adjourn at 9.35 P. M. 

WALTER PERHAM, HAROLD C. PETTERSON, 

Moderator. Town Clerk.

Dear Sir: 

I hereby submit a report of my duties as Police Woman for the year

During the past year I have informed the Department of neery cases 
and have always found my requests fulfilled. At Thanksgiving I investi- 
gated several cases and delivered one basket. At Christmas I delivered 21 
baskets from the Department to very needy families. This took a great 
deal of Christmas vacation time, but the happiness of those receiving bas- 
kets, clothes, and toys, was reward enough for it all. A New Year's 
basket was also placed. Throughout the year the Department has been 
most kind and generous in providing food and clothing for the less 
fortunate. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE CEMETERY COMMISSION 
For the Year Ending December 31, 1935 

To the Board of Selectmen : Chelmsford, Massachusetts. 

Gentlemen : 

The Cemetery Commission beg to submit the following report for the 
year ending December 31, 1935. 

Fore Fathers — During this past year many owners have regraded and 
seeded their lots at their own expense. The perpetual care lots have re- 
ceived special attention. The old section has had the usual good care. As 
a whole, this cemetery is in very good condition. 

Pine Ridge — Lots that were sold this last year have been graded, also 
many of the older lots were reseeded. All of the seeding from the main 
gate to the center of cemetery that was improved in 1934, has been seeded 
together with the outside of wall next to the main highway. We will 
say at this time, that this particular cemetery is in good shape. 

Hart Pond — General care in this cemetery has been the same as in 
past years. The whole of the cemetery has been mowed with a lawn mower 
together with the roadside. Drives and walks have been weeded and raked 
at all times. In the grove at the back, the under brush was cut out and 
burned as usual. One of the lot owners has given to the cemetery, a lawn 
seat, a bird bath and urn which are to be set under the large pines near the 
evergreens this spring. This arrangement we believe, will be very attrac- 
tive. General care is very good in this cemetery. 

Riverside — The general upkeep has been very good. The section that 
was developed in 1934 has been seeded. Some time has been devoted 
there for the resetting of slabs and tablets in the old part of the cemetery. 
This part is where we have no record of lot owners. All perpetual care 
lots have received special attention. 

Fairview — The outside of wall next to the highway, together with the 
section developed in 1934 has been seeded. The central part of the ceme- 
tery has been mowed at all times. Walks and driveways also, have been 
receiving very good care. This particular cemetery has a possibility of 
developing into one of the finest in town. 

West — This cemetery as in the past, has been very well kept. Portions 
of the new section has been graded and prepared for sale of lots. All of 
this cemetery has been mowed with a lawn mower, and walks and drive- 
ways also have had excellent care. All the pine needles and leaves in the 
fall have been cleaned up and burned, also trees and shrubs have been 
well kept, and trimmed. 

At this time, we take the opportunity of thanking the superintendents 
of these cemeteries for their undivided co-operation.

REPORT OF FOREST WARDEN 

January 1, 1936. 
Board of Selectmen, Che!msford, Mass. : 
Gentlemen : 

I herewith submit the following report for the year ending December 
31, 1935. 

During the past year we were called to extinguish one hundred and 
thirty-five (135) forest and grass fires About twelve hundred (1200) acres 
of land were burned over ; most of this was scrub and grass land of no 
value No buildings were damaged by these fires, although several were in 
direct danger at the time of our arrival. 

On April 28, 1935, we were called to a fire on Ledge Road in what is 
known as Tar Paper Village. This fire started in the Town of Westford, 
burning some twenty (20) acres before crossing the line into Chelmsford. 

80 



With a strong northwest wind and underbrush as dry as tinder this proved 
to be the most dangerous fire of the year. 

Several times it was thought to be under control, but broke out again 
fanned by a strong wind and continued to Swain and Groton Roads, where, 
with the assistance of the Fire Department, we were able, to extinguish it 
withmout any loss of property. Seven hundred (700) acres were burned 
over by this fire, most of which was covered by scrub oak and a few small 
pine of no value. 

Lack of water made it necessary to pump from Crystal Lake to protect 
buildings situated on Groton and Swain Roads. 

The cause of most fires was unknown, but many were thought to have 
been caused by careless persons throwing smoking material from automo- 
biles. 

Several young culprits were apprehended for starting fires, but due to 
their tender age no court action was taken. It was deemed advisable to let 
their parents punish them. 

One case, after investigation, was turned over to the State Warden for 
disposition. 

Fine assistance and co-operation was rendered to this town by State Dis- 
trict Deputy Warden Stone and Observer Welch during the past year. 

The issuance of permta for fires in the open requires a great deal of 
time on the part of the Warden and his Deputies. It is estimated that over 
fifteen hundred (1500) permits for fires in the open were issued during 
1935. Many days in the busiest season fifty (50) permits were issued by 
the Warden, which meant almost permanent duty at no additional cost to 
the town. 

The equipment of this department is in good condition at the present 
time, and unless some unforeseen emergency occurs shou 1 d be sufficient for 
several years. The Federal Knight truck, which was turned over to this 
department by the Fire Department, has proven very satisfactory and has 
paid for itself many times in service rendered. 

Besides the District Chiefs of the Fire Department the following 
Deputy Forest Wardens were appointed : Wallace A. Greig, Fred L. 
Fletcher, Fred W. Merrill, Walter H. Merrill, Adam Zabierek, Ernest C. 
Soulis, and Robert Henderson. 

In conclusion I wish to express my appreciation to the Police Depart- 
ment, Fire Department, and my Deputy Forest Wardens for the fine co- 
operation they have extended to me during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GILBERT H. PERHAM, 

Forest Warden.

REPORT OF THE WORK OF THE 
MIDDLESEX COUNTY EXTENSION SERVICE 
IN CHELMSFORD FOR THE YEAR 1935 

Milk market problems continue to be first with the dairy farmers. The 
Extension Service has helped individual farmers and has continued to work 
with groups of farmers oh these problems. Suggestions have been made on 
improving pastures, the growing of emergency hay crops, and increased 
feeding of legumes ; all these to cut the cost of milk production. 

Poultrymen have been assisted in diagnosis of disease and helped in its 
control. The need of better growing conditions for chicks and pullets on 
range has been stressed by the County Agent. Problems in ventilation and 
housing have been worked on by the farmers and the County Agent 

Fifteen farm visits were made to fruit growers on culture and pest con- 
trol. A spray demonstration meeting was attended by thirty people. Mov- 
ies were shown at a Grange meeting and at the garden club meeting. 

Spray warning service was given to 109 fruit growers an*d 45 market 
gardeners, giving information on the time of application, the diseases and 
insects to control, and the right material to use, in order to obtain high 
quality fruits and vegetables. 

The 4-H clothing club is the most popular club in Chelmsford. About 
seventy members made gifts, household articles, and clothes under the lead- 
ership of Miss Isabelle Hamilton, Rita Ferron, Mrs. Evelyn Stadig at 
North ; Mrs. R. P. Kidder, Mrs. Percy Beardsley at the Centre ; Mrs. 
Joseph Vercentaire, Mrs. Herbert Scabie and Mrs. Elmer Batchelder at 
East. Two 4-H food clubs were conducted by Mrs. Herbert Needham at 
North and Miss Genieve Dean at West. 

Mr. Dewey Fish led the handicraft club at South. Garden clubs were 
under the leadership of Mrs. Bayard Dean at West; Ralph House, Henry 
Warren, and Charles Twiss at South. 4-H members took part in programs 
and displayed work in the spring in all sections of the town and also in the 
Grange Fair in September.

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THE ADAMS LIBRARY 

The Board organized with Albert H. Davis as Chairman, Mrs. Luella 
H. S. Clark as Secretary, and Frederick A. P. Fiske as Treasurer. 

Mrs. Ida A. Jefts was reappointed librarian and Mrs. Addegonde 
Peterson as assistant librarian. Miss Marianna Hemenway was reappoint- 
ed to assist in the Children's Department. 

The circulation of books decreased by 1,560 volumes, due, no doubt, to 
the fact that there is less unemployment. 

The reading room is well equipped with magazines and is well patron- 
ized. 

An excellent collection of geographic pictures is available for the use 
of teachers.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 
For the Year Ending December 31, 1935 

Officers and Citizens of the Town of Chelmsford : 

This year, the Board organized the first of a series of clinics for inocu- 
lating dogs with anti-rabies serum. This step was highly recommended by 
State officials as the best method of quickly halting the very rapid spread 
of rabies among dogs which has accelerated during the last few years. 
We are convinced that the clinics held this last year have proven that inocu- 
lation is very beneficial and has materially reduced the number of cases in 
town. All surrounding towns have held clinics this last year and the indica- 
tions are that they will be continued. We were able to secure a very favor- 
able rate for the inoculatons, namely, 50 cents whereas the average rate 

85 



charged by veterinarians for individual cases is usually $2.00. Clinics will be 
organized again this year, dates to be announced later. All dog owners 
are urged to take advantage of the low rate. 

The town was very fortunate this last year in that despite the epidemic 
of infantile paralysis throughout the state, only one case was reported 
here. Cases of other contagious diseases were also relatively few. Credit 
is due the agent for close supervision over contagious diseases. 

Among the unpaid bills for 1935 which will be listed for payment 
in 1936 are three, namely : 

Frost & Co $ 12.01 

Middlesex County Sanitarium 46 50 

City of Lowell _ 242.17 



$300.68 

As an explanation, we wish to state that the Board did not exceed their 
appropriation, since sufficient money to cover these bills was unexpended. 
Since payements for the year were closed by the town accountant before 
the bills were received or could be approved necessarily they had to be 
carried over. 

The reports of the agent and other inspectors follow: 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. A. MacELROY, 

G. A. McNULTY, 
J. J. KIBERD, Jr. 



REPORT OF THE AGENT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 

Mr. Frederic MacElroy, 

Chairman of Board oFTIealth. 

Dear Sir: 

The following is a report for the year 1935 : 

Scarlet Fever 17 

Measles _ 7 

German Measles 13 

Tuberculosis 7 

Whooping Cough 17 

Chicken Pox 19

Encephalitis 1

Several specimens were sent Lu the State for tests as precautionary 
measures on typhoid suspects. 

When contagious diseases are reported, houses are carded, all books 
are fumigated and returned, and children who have been in contact with 
the disease are isolated for a week. Jn order to protect other children, pupils 
with colds are excluded for a short time. Several trips were made to the 
Middlesex County Sanitorium, Tcwksbury State Hospital, and to the G. U. 
Clinic in Lowell. 

Pupils Schicked in May who were immunized in October, 1934: 

Negative 210 

Positive 11 

Total 221 

Seven of the eleven were re-immunized in October, 1935 — the other 
four had left town. We gave diptheria toxoid to 195 children under twelve 
year of age and toxin-anti-toxin to two teachers and seventeen children 
of twelve years of age; these will receive the Schick test in the spring, but 
the children under under twelve will not require it. There has not been 
a case of diphtheria in town this year. The diphtheria toxoid was given 
on the advice of our State health officer, Dr. Archibald, who has been here 
several times this year to discuss the health situation. We intend to con- 
tinue our immunization clinics, but we are particularly anxious to im- 
munize children under school age, for it is at this time that the most benefit 
is derived from the toxoid. I do urge parents to have the child treated 
as soon as it is six months old. 

In October the Middlesex County conducted a school clinic at which 
pupils in the seventh, ninth, and eleventh grades were given the tuber- 
culosis test. Twelve children in the lower grades who were exposed to tuber- 
culosis were also tested and held over to another year to be X-rayed and ex- 
amined as observation cases. 

Children Tested 166 

Children X-rayed 63 

Children Referred for Examination 13 

Deferred Case 1 

There were ten pupils who have been examined each year by the State 
clinic, but this year Dr. Martin of the county clinic was so satisfied with 
their improvement that he discharged them. 

Dental work in the schools is done by Dr. Ritter, who has been a most 
efficient dentist in the six and one-half years he has been with us. He is 
in the school every Wednehday from 9 A. M. to 3 P. M. 

Teeth Treated 311 

Teeth Filled — Temporary 411 

Teeth Filled — Permanent 710 

Teeth Cleaned 607 

Teeth Extracted— Temporary 401 

Teeth Extracted — Permanent 23 

Examined by Dentist 1024 

The Parent-Teacher Associations in all parts of town have given 
generously of their funds to assist in corrective work for children who 

87 



could not afford to pay even the dentist's reduced prices. In the spring 
when the High School Parent-Teacher Association disbanded, $9.00 which 
was left in the treasury was turned in toward High School dental work — 
three High School pupils had all their work done. 

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all those who have so excellently 
co-operated with me during the year 1935.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE MILK INSPECTION DIVISION 

December 31, 1935. 
Board of Health, 
Chelmsford, Mass. 
Gentlemen : 

I have the honor to present the report of the Milk Inspection Division 
for the year ending December 31, 1935. 

There were nine stores registered to sell oleomargarine. 

Three licenses were issued to milk dealers to maintain establishments for 
the pasteurization of milk. 

Forty-four stores and twenty-two milk distributors were issued milk 
licenses. 

89 



Sixty-seven dollars and fifty cents, collected for license fees, were 
paid to the Town Treasurer. 

Three hundred and six dairy farms were inspected, scored, and classi- 
fied as required by law, according to the rules and regulations of the Milk 
Regulation Board. All producers supplying the town now have some type 
of milk house, and means of keeping the milk at fifty degrees Fahr., or 
below from the time of production until delivery to the distributor. Many 
milk pails and strainers have been condemned and replaced as a result of 
the inspections and more suitable refrigeration has been installed in some 
milk houses. Better sanitary conditions in the production and handling of 
milk, now exist as a result of repeated visits. 

During the year the Milk Regulation Board promulgated rules and 
regulations establishing eight grades of milk, regulating and establishing 
standards, so that now each bottle cap has an outlined semicircle, reserved 
exclusively for the grade designation. 

There were seized from dealers eight hundred thirty-seven chemical ; 
five hundred eighty-two bacterial ; one hundred twelve cream ; four hun- 
dred forty-three sediment samples of milk. Of the chemical samples : two 
hundred five were milk — raw; e'even certified milk — raw; five hundred 
sitxy-two milk — pasteurized; fifty-nine grade A milk. 

The numerical averages of the chemical and median averages of the 
bacterial samples for the year follow: 

Milk — raw: total solids, 12.93%; fat, 4 02%; median average per cubic 
centimeter, 14,000. 

Certified milk — raw: total solids, 13.17%; fat, 4.09%; median average 
per cubic centimeter, no colonies developed. 

Milk — pasteurized: total solids, 12.86%; fat 3.96%; median average per 
cubic centimeter, 8,000. 

Grade A milk: total solids, 13.45%; fat, 4.40%; median average per 
cubic centimeter, 2,800. 

There were seized from producers two hundred eighty-four chemical ; 
three hundred thirty-nine bacterial ; two hundred sixty-three sediment 
samples The median bacterial count was 15,000. 

Ninety-seven inspections of milk dealers plants were made. 

Approximately 1907 quarts of milk and 49 quarts of cream were con- 
sumed daily. 

Respectfully submitted,

There are 525 swine, 16 sheep and 14 goats in town. 

On Oct. 31, 1935, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in its entirety 
was recognized as a Federal Accredited Area, that is,, an area having less 
than one-half of one per cent of the cattle react to the test for tuberculosis. 

All cattle in town are regularly tested by State and Federal Inspectors, 
and only 57 reactors were found in three different herds in the past year. 
These three stables were properly cleaned and disinfected after the diseased 
animals were removed. 

Ninety-three cows and nine bul's for dairy purposes, 55 beef cattle, 200 
calves and 21 sheep were shipped into town on permits issued by the State 
authorities. They were identified and released upon proof of satisfactory 
test charts and certificates showing that they came from herds free from 
Bangs disease during the year previous to entry into the State. 

The same conditions are now in effect as last year relative to the con- 
trol of Bangs disease by the State and Federal authorities. Don't forget to 
obtain the necessary permit before bringing cattle into town from outside 
the State. 

Fifty dog bite cases have been investigated. In 22 dog bite cases the 
dogs were held in quarantine for a two weeks' observation period and then 
released. Ten other dogs were inspected and found to be normal. Four 
rabid dogs were killed and two others passed through parts of the town and 
were killed elsewhere. Ten dogs were quarantined after contact with rabid 
dogs, six were killed before being released and the other four were released 
after ninety days, no rabies having developed. 

Two dogs froth other towns were inspected after they bit persons in 
Chelmsford.

To the Physicians, School Nurse, Police and Health authorities I wish 
to express my appreciation for their co-operation and help. 

Under Chapter 426, Acts of 1935, a person engaging in the business of 
dealing in bovine animals, except for immediate slaughter, must obtain a 
license therefor from the Division of Livestock Disease Control. Farm- 
ers or others engaged in dairying, whose cattle sales are but a minor part 
of that business, are not required to take out such a license. 

Any and all persons purchasing cattle from a dealer should make sure 
that said dealer has a license to sell dairy cattle. 

Cattle to be app'roved for addition to Massachusetts herds must be de- 
livered direct. 

1. From premises where testing is conducted under State supervision 
and on which premises there were no reactors at time of last entire herd 
test. 

2. From the dairy section of the Brighton stock yards, or 

3. From a licensed cattle dealer. 

For further information call your Inspector of Animals.

BOARD OF FIRE ENGINEERS 

To the Honarable Board of Selectmen, 

Chelmsford, Mass. 
Gentlemen : 

The annual report of the Board of Fire Engineers is respectfully sub- 
mitted herewith : 

The Board is organized as follows : 
Harry L. Shedd, Chief 
John W. Dixon, Asst. Chief 
John W. Kemp, Asst. Chief 
with the latter serving as Clerk of the Board. 

The Board appointed the following District Chiefs : 

Wilhelm T. Johnson District No. 1 

Joseph D. Ryan District No. 2 

Walter Edwards District No. 3 

Henry G. Quinn District No. 4 

Arthur W. House District No. 5 

Arthur W. House, Chief District No. 5, resigned as of July 1st, 1936, 
and the Board appointed in his place Charles House. 

We regret to record this change as Arthur W. House had been a mem- 
ber of the Department for many years, but we believe that Charles House, 
his son, will bring good results to this District by reason of his ability and 
experience, and expect good results from his administration of the company 
in this section of the town. 

The men of the Department, by their faithful service and loyal co-ope- 
ration, have proven both at fires and drills their efficiency as a well or- 

92 



ganized fire-fighting force ready for any emergency, and an organization of 
whom the citizens may be justly proud. 

We have exercised a watchful care over apparatus, equipment and quar- 
ters and have kept them maintained in first-class condition. 

We have effected extensive repairs to the pumper stationed at West 
Chelmsford so that it is now almost as good as new. 

In accordance with the mandate of the Town Meeting a new 500-gallon 
Pumper, equipped with 1,000 feet 2J^" double jackket hose, has been installed 
at the Centre. This piece of apparatus is modern in every respect, and at its 
tests exceeded the requirements of the underwriters. The pumper at the 
Centre was taken to East Chelmsford, and the truck stationed there turned 
over to the Forest Warden, so that the town now has one of he best equipped 
departments in the State for towns of similar size. This has resulted in 
lower insurance rates in East Chelmsford. 

The department has responded to 51 alarms of fire, and in addition has 
rendered aid at brush fires and assistance to neighboring towns and cities. 

We have endeavored to eliminate waste, and have practiced economy 
without effecting efficiency of operation, and believe that by this carefully 
planned policy have operated the department at a lower cost than many simi- 
lar departments with resultant benefits to the taxpayers. 

In closing, we would express our appreciation of the excellent co- 
operation given by the Police both of our own excellent department as well 
as the State Troopers and the Lowell Motor Cycle officers.

REPORT OF WELFARE AGENT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen, 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts. 
Gentlemen : 

I hereby submit my first report as Welfare Agent for the Town of 
Chelmsford starting April 1, 1935, and ending December 31, 1935. 

During the year 1935 the aid and relief, also the Old Age Assistance 
increased to a great extent over the year 1934. This can partly be ex- 
plained by the fact, that with all due regard to the Federal Expenditures, 
on work relief, unemployment is increasing and that private employment 
is seasonal to a great degree. This is evidenced by the fact that our 
welfare load drops off noticeably during the summer months when the 
local quarries and mills are working steadily. Probably an analysis of our 
Welfare Expenditures for the year 1935 would throw some light on this 
situation which is confronting the tax payers of our town. 

Public Welfare in the Town of Chelmsford is divided into two major 

93 



classes, Temporary Aid and Old Age Assistance. During the year 1935 
we expended $31,072.-16 on Temporary Aid and $11,619.51 on Old Age 
Assistance, an increase of 45% and 47% respectively over the year 1934 ; 
whereas our increase in cases were 70% on Temporary Aid and 65% on 
Old Age Assistance. This general increase is not only true in Chelmsford 
but throughout the State as well, as evidenced by information from vari- 
ous towns and cities. 

In the system of investigation now used in our Welfare and Old Age 
Assistance cases in the Town, we have access to all bank accounts, insur- 
ance policies, Postal Savings accounts, as well as reports from relatives 
on their ability to aid, also medical and military service reports. 

Due to recent laws passed in our State and Federal legislatures the 
eligibility requirements for Old Age Assistance have been lowered. The' 
age limit for Old Age Assistance applicants will without doubt be changed 
from seventy years to sixty-five. This means we must expect an increase 
in Old Age Assistance ; to what amount this will increase it is hard to 
foretell. 

In viewing the outlook for 1936, I would recommend the following 
measures to be put in effect ; the purchase of all commodities used in any 
quantities by private bids, a closer check-up on our rents and the appoint- 
ment of one or two doctors at a fixed salary to care for our welfare cases ; 
a satisfactory arrangement on this would be one doctor for the North and 
West sections, and the other for the Centre and East and South districts. 

In closing I would like to thank the Board of Public Welfare, the 
Chelmsford Police Department, and other Town officials who have made 
my first year as Welfare Agent a pleasant one through their whole-hearted 
co-operation. 

Respectfully yours, 

LEONARD S. MacELROY, 

Welfare Agent.

REPORT OF THE CHELMSFORD E. R. A -W. P. A. 
FOR 1935 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen, 
Town of Chelmsford, Massachusetts. 

1 lonorable Sirs: 

As Administrator of the E. R. A. and W. P. A. I hereby submit to you 
and the citizens of the Town my report for the year 1935, showing princi- 
pal projects undertaken and completed, together with such other data as may 
show the effect of work relief on the Community and its people. 

By and large the most important projects undertaken during 1935 were 
the two water projects: One for the extension of water mains in the North 
Chelmsford Fire District, and the other for the laying of new mains in the 
recently organized South Chelmsford Water District. The materials for 
these two projects were purchased by the respective districts, and the labor 
was paid by the Federal Government. 

In November, 1935, our E. R. A. projects were turned over to the 
Works Progress Administration. 

PROJECTS CARRIED ON UNDER E. R. A and W. P. A. 

The projects completed in 1935 and in progress at the end of the year 
are as follows : 

1. WATER PROJECTS: 

a. South Chelmsford Water District : Cast iron water mains were laid 
5 feet deep on Acton Road, Byam Road, Robin Hill Road, Maple Road, 
Proctor Road, and Park Road. Hydrants were connected at suitable points 
and copper service pipe laid to the property lines. As the year drew to a 
close the pipe was laid to within sight of the corner of Acton and Park 
Roads with 85 men on the job. It is the plan to continue laying mains 
across Acton Road, and stop at the residence of Mr. Otis Brown, which 
will mark the completion of the project. 

b. North Chelmsford Fire District : Cast iron water mains were laid 
on the following roads as an extension of the previous district: Groton Road 
to the Westford line, West Chelmsford Road, Tyngsboro Road and Dun- 
stable Road. Service pipe was laid to the property lines and hydrants 
placed to advantage. As the year ended the work was nearly completed 
with the exception of a short length on Dunstable Road. 

2 ROAD CONSTRUCTION : 

Hunt Road: Approximately l*^ miles of Hunt Road was widened from 
12 to 18 feet. The sides of the road were cleaned of brush and protruding- 
rocks, and blind corners were cut and straightened. The road was re- 
graveled to 6-inch thickness. 

Albina Street : This street between Carlisle Street and Beaulieu Street 
was formerly impassable. A hill at the site was excavated to a depth of 8 
feet and a bank wall was constructed 210 feet long. The road was re- 

95 



graveled and made safe for traffic and fire apparatus. This road will also 
serve as a convenience for the children who attend the East Chelmsford 
School. 

Sherman Street : This street was built for a distance of 500 feet ad- 
joining the Varney Playground by filling in an unsightly dump and provid- 
ing a new section of street in a residential section. 

3 PUBLIC BUILDINGS: 

North Chelmsford Town Hall : This hall, which was declared unsafe 
by the State Building Inspector, was given a thorough reconstruction and 
renovation. New steel columns were placed in the basement and first floor, 
and new beams were placed for second floor strengthening. Fire stops were 
constructed at floor lines and stairways and the entire building was rewired 
with modern cable for lighting. New flooring was laid on the entire first 
floor and stage of second floor. A new vestibule was built on the front of 
the building, new "rain gutters we?e erected, and other minor replacements 
made too numerous to mention. Finally the building was painted inside and 
out ,and put in first-class repair in every particular. 

4 MISCELLANEOUS PROJECTS: 

a. Old Garage : The old garage in back of the Princeton Street School 
was taken down and the materials salvaged for the Varney Field House 
project. 

b. Varney Field House : A Field House at Varney Playground, size 
24' 8" x 26' 8", two stories high, was constructed at the end of the ball field 
near Crystal Lake. The structure is of permanent nature, being built of 
gianite and brick. It will serve as a much-needed shelter, and is equipped 
with fireplace and toilet facilities. 

c. Baseball Diamond : A standard baseball diamond and infield was 
built at Varney Playground with backstop. Over 10,000 cu. yds. of gravel 
were moved into low areas under previous projects of the E. R. A. to make 
this baseball diamond possible. 

d. Apple Pest Control: Various sections in the vicinity of apple orch- 
ards were cleared of wild apple trees, cherry trees and cherry bush which 
might be injurious to commercial orchards. 

e. Emergency Snow Removal : During the blizzard and snow storm of 
January 25, 1935, all E. R. A. workers were turned over to the Town High- 
way Department to clear the roads of snow. The saving to the Town was 
$2 691.00 for wages. 

f. Moth Project: Wooded areas totalling 200 acres were cleaned of 
gypsy and brown tail moth eggs, the project being abandoned because of 
warm weather, to be resumed at a later date. 

g. Sewing Project: The women's sewing project operated continuously 
during 1935 in the Center Town Hall, with an average of 25 women em- 
ployed in making garments for die needy. This project is now turned over 
to the W. P. A., with 35 women employed. 

h. Federal Housing : During the summer months two canvassers were 
engaged in visiting property owners to stimulate repairs and alterations un- 
der the loan privileges of the Federal Housing Act. 

96 



i. Town Survey : A project is now under way to prepare a map of 
Chelmsford showing all highways, public buildings, railroads, fire hydrants, 
etc. A map of this kind has been needed for many years. 

j. Grubbing Road Corners: A new project to grub and cut back dan- 
gerous corners on Town roads has been started under the W. P. A. 

k. harm to Market Roads: Farm to Market roads have been selected 
in Chelmsford as Dunstable Road and Riverneek Roads. This is a Stale 
project using local W. P. A. labor and local trucks. 

1. Widening and Graveling Town Roads: This project has started un- 
der the W. P. A. and calls for the widening and graveling of Robin Hill 
Road, Locust Road, Byam Road, Swain Road and Locke Road. 

m. Repairs and Painting School Buildings : This project is now started 
at the Princeton Street School, and when the workmen are through there 
they will transfer to the South Chelmsford School and the Westlands 
School. 

COST OF PROJECTS 

The Federal Government Paid Out in Wages from January 1, 

1935, to December 31, 1935 $109,878.53 

Amount Appropriated by the Town of Chelmsford in 1935 for 
Materials, Truck Hire, etc., or 7.7% of Total Expendi- 
tures 9,200.00 

Total Expenditures $119,078.53 

FUTURE PROJECTS 

At the present time 185 persons are employed on the W. P. A. ; every 
able-bodied man or woman who is on welfare has been given the opportun- 
ity of work on the W. P. A. Many of these are older men who are taking 
this opportunity to earn their own living. 

Sufficient worth-while projects besides those in operation have been 
approved by the Works Progress Administration to keep our unemployed at 
work for another six months, providing the Town furnishes the materials, 
truck hire, etc. 

T wish at this time to publicly thank the Board of Selectmen, Depart- 
ment Heads, and other Town officials, who have given so generously of their 
time to the end that the E. R. A.-W. P. A. might work smoothly. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANK J. LUPIEN, 
Local Administrator E. R. A. & W. P. A.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of the Town of Chelmsford: 

The conditions at the High School in regard to overcrowding have been 
so thoroughly discussed at several public meetings that it is not necessary to 
go into them again at this time. However, the problem as to what is the 
right thing to do for the pupils, as well as for the taxpayers, is still with us. 

As a whole the school buildings throughout the town are in very good 
repair. This has been accomplished through the help and the co-operation 
received from the E. R. A. and later through the W. P. A., which has fur- 
nished labor to paint and repair the buildings at no direct expense to the 
town. The grounds at several of the schools, especially the High School, 
have been considerably improved. This work has been done as a separate 
project under the E. R. A. and has resulted in permanent improvements. 

The morale of the teachers is high, and their devotion to their work 
and their unfailing co-operation has helped to maintain a high standard 
throughout the school system. 

The close and efficient supervision which our superintendent exercises 
at all times has made it possible to keep the costs in our schools down to 
a point where Chelmsford has one of the lowest costs per pupil in the 
whole state of Massachusetts, without at any time depriving the pupils of 
necessary supplies, books and instruction. 

The various Parent-Teacher Associations throughout the town have 
been active in sponsoring and carrying out important and helpful work. 
Their contributions for free milk and dental work deserve special 
commendation. 

We, as a committee, respectfully urge all citizens to study the reports 
of the heads of various departments so that they may learn what has been 
done and what it is hoped to accomplish. 

Respectfully submitted, 

RALPH A. BERG, 
JAMES P. CASSIDY, 
JOHN A. McADAMS, 

School Committee. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO SECURE PLANS AND 

SPECIFICATIONS FOR AN ADDITION TO 

THE HIGH SCHOOL 



The special town meeting on April 30, 1935 appropriated $2000 to he 
used in securing plans and specifications for an addition to the High School, 
and authorized the Moderator to appoint a committee of four to work with 
the School Committee for this purpose. The Moderator appointed Mr. 
C G. Armstrong, Mr. Roy Clough, Mr. John Meagher, and Mr. James 
Kiberd, Sr. The committee organized by electing Mr. Clough chairman 
and Mr. Kiberd secretary. 

At this first meeting, after looking over the sketches submitted by 
several architects in 1930-31 and others submitted later, the committee voted 
to consult Mr. John Ashton of the firm of Ashton and Huntress, Law- 
rence, a firm of long experience in school house construction. It was also 
voted to apply to the Federal Government for a Public Works Administra- 
tion grant. 

Satisfactory arrangements were made with Mr. Ashton, and after a 
series of meetings with the committee members he presentd floor p'ans that 
were acceptable to all. These provided six classrooms, all larger than the 
rooms in the present building, an assembly room, a lunch room, en 1 arged 
toilet facilities, and locker and shower rooms. As soon as the floor plans 
were ready application was made for a Federal grant. The plans were 
approved by the Federal authorities, but more than two months e'apsed 
before on November 13, 1935 the grant of 45 per cent of the cost of con- 
struction and equipment was made. The terms of the grant required that 
the contract for construction be signed by December 15th. 

At the request of the building committee the Selectmen called a special 
Town meeting for November 27, 1935, at which the Town was to be asked 
to raise by a bond issue $66,000, this being 55% of the estimated cost of 
the addition and equipment The meeting dismissed the article without con- 
sidering the merits of the proposition.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT 

To the School Committee : 

This, my eighth report to you and to the citizens of Chelmsford, the 
62nd in the series of school reports, should be read in connection with 
those of 1930, 1932, and 1934, which discussed in detail the various items 
of school costs. Since these vary little from year to year, comment is made 
in the case of the few items in which there is considerable change. A 
complete statement of school expenditures is given in the report of the 
Town Accountant. 

The reports for 1930 and 1934 showed current school costs figured 
out on a unit basis, item by item, and compared them with costs in other 
towns. A similar comparison for 1935 would give practically the same 
results. School costs in Chelmsford are low. The report of the Depart- 
ment of Education gives each year the expenditure for school support in 
all the towns and cities of the Commonwealth. For the year ending Decem- 
ber 31, 1934, the report gives $96,691.86 as the expenditure in Chelmsford, 
and $63.16 as the expenditure per pupil in net average membership. The 
report ranks Chelmsford as 77th of the 83 towns in Group II (towns 
over 5000) in cost per pupil. In the six towns having a lower cost trans- 
portation ran from nothing at all to $4.46 a pupil. Transportation in 
Chelmsford costs $5 23 for each pupil enrolled. 

ADMINISTRATION 
The overhead cost of running the schools was $3,944.81, including 
expenses of the School Committee, salary of superintendent and of 
attendance officers, postage and stationery, and telephone in the superin- 
tendent's office. 

INSTRUCTION 

The amount paid the fifty teachers and music supervisor was $63,204.23. 
As explained in last year's report, two separate reductions in teachers' sal- 
aries have been made, first by a downwrd revision of salary schedule 
in 1931, and then in 1933 by a cut of five per cent, or more. Beginning 
last April the five per cent cut was restored. Compared with other towns 
in Group II, towns of over 5000 population, our salary schedule is low. 
High School teachers, either men or women, begin at $1100 and receive 
annual increases of $100 to a maximum of $1500 Grade teachers begin 
at $850 and receive annual increases of $50 to a maximum of $1200. The 
revision of 1931 left the older grade teachers receiving the maximum of 
that time, $1300. There are eleven now receiving that amount. 

Books cost $1,308.69 and supplies $2,482.14, which with the amount 
paid teachers made the cost of instruction $66,995.06. 

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE 

The cost of operation, keeping the school buildings open, includes jan- 
itors, $8,332.50; janitors' supplies, $390.82; light, water, and power, 
$1,626.55 ; and fuel, $3,939.87. The ten school buildings required about 500 
tons of coal in 1935, 50 tons more than the usual amount. 



The cost of maintenance, keeping the buildings repaired, replacing 
furniture, typewriters, etc, and of improvements, was $3,153.36. The ten 
buildings are valued by the Assessors at $518,000, so this expenditure is 
about three-fifths of one per cent of the value of the buildings. And be it 
noted that school buildings, used by children, get hard usage. Great credit 
is due the janitors for the excellent care the buildings receive. They var- 
nish desks and woodwork, do some painting, and make minor repairs, in 
addition to keeping the buildings warm and clean. Materials used by jan- 
itors cost $270. In previous years the East Chelmsford School, the High- 
land Avenue, and the Quessy have been painted inside as E. R. A. projects. 
Last summer application was made for W. P. A. projects for the repairing 
and painting of the two buildings at Princeton Street and the South 
Chelmsford School, for calsomining ceilings at the Westlands, and for 
cleaning and whitewashing the attic at East Chelmsford. 1'he projects 
were approved and work was started at Princeton Street in December. 
These buildings were badly in need of major repairs. The carpenter work 
includes replacing splintered clapboards, repairing belfry on the old build- 
ing, removing - the cupola on the new building, which is so weakened that 
there is danger of it being blown off, replacing all stair treads, replacing 
some floor timbers, putting up boards for displaying w T ork, building entries 
from the playground to the basement, etc. Both buiMings will be painted 
on the outside and the old building on the inside. With the completion of 
this work these buildings, with new toilet systems previously installed, will 
compare favorably with the other town schools. About $825 was expended 
in December for material for the work at Princeton Street schools. 

Among repairs and improvements these may be of interest. Two rooms 
at the High School were lined with celotex to make them warmer. They 
are decidedly the most comfortab 1 e rooms in the building. The peculiar con- 
struction of the building, brick walls without a plaster finish, makes it 
almost impossible to heat the rooms properly in extremely cold weather 
and on days of high wind. It would probably be a measure of economy to 
line all the corner rooms with celotex, and this wou 1 d go far to do away 
with complaints of chilly rooms. The cost of the two rooms was approxi- 
mately $175. 

Two typewriters were replaced at a cost of $80; three flagpoles were 
rebuilt and reset at a cost of $60; new window shades cost $185; doors to 
the entries at the Westlands. other improvements and repairs amounted to 
$145 ; connecting the plumbing at South Chelmsford with the new water 
system, $138 ; a new ventilating fan at the McFarlin School, $65 ; steps at 
East Chelmsford and other repairs, $50; chimney and roof at High 1 and 
Avenue, $83; playgrounds and lawns, $112; lining walls in unexcavated 
space under old building at Princeton Street to prevent pipes from freezing, 
$75; electric wiring, motors, etc., $110. 

As is always the case, the month to month repairs to the heating and 
plumbing systems constituted the largest bills for maintenance. Two items 
were unusual in 1935, both in the McFarlin School. The heating system is 
of the vacuum type, and electric pumps are used to return the water to 
the boilers. The pumps seemed to be running excessively. A checkup 
revealed many leaks in the peculiar valves used in the system. These were 

8 



replaced at a oust, with labor, of $114. The power bills in the school 
immediately dropped from a high of $13.77 for November l'.>34 to the 
minimum rate of $3.00 a month. 

Soon after school opened in September sewage hacked up into the 
toilets in the McFarlin School. When the traps were opened the waste 
pipes were found clear till they left the building. In previous years the 
dry wells which receive the effluent from the septic tanks have proved 
inadequate, and additional wells have been dug and connected with the 
system. We have never had a plan of the plumbing or of the septic tanks. 
On uncovering the tanks we found ten small ones set in line. The tank 
nearest the building was absolutely filled with solids; there was no pos- 
sibility of the sewage flowing to the second tank. The next two or three 
were almost as bad, and it may be questioned whether this battery of ten 
small tanks ever functioned properly. The solids were cleaned out of the 
tanks and they were covered up, as the quickest way cf handling the situa- 
tion. This cannot be considered a permanent solution of the difficulty. The 
tanks may answer for two, or three, or five years, but eventually the same 
situation will develop. Sewage disposal both for this school and for the 
High School is a major problem. I would suggest that the Town might 
do well to engage a sanitary engineer, possibly one from the Department 
of Public Health, to make a study of the situation in both schools and to 
recommend procedure for a permanent solution. The cost of this block- 
ing of the sewage system was one day of school lost and about $85. 

Ordinary plumbing repairs amounted to about $275, and the balance 
of the expenditure for maintenance about $325, was in many small items 
for repairing doors, windows, furniture, etc. 



AUXILIARY AGENCIES 

Getting children to and from school and caring for their health are 
included under this heading. Last June the second three-year transportation 
contract with George W. Marinel terminated. Bids for another three-year 
period were called for in June, and when they were opened the contract 
was again awarded to Mr. Marinel at a somewhat increased cost. This 
contract calls for the payment of $27,000 to be made in monthly payments 
for the 34 months from the opening of school last September to July 1, 
?938, when the contract terminates. On October 1, 1935, 297 were being 
carried to the High School, 137 to McFarlin, 78 to Princeton Street, 72 to 
Quessy, and 29 to South, 613 in all. This makes the cost for each pupil 
carried $14.70. In addition to carrying pupils to the regular school sessions, 
the contract includes transportation of pupils to entertainments, graduation 
exercises, rehearsals, etc., which are approved by the School Committee 
and to the clinics conducted by the Board of Health. Since the schools are 
in session about 180 days the cost per day for each pupil carried is less 
than 9 cents. 

No figures are published by the state for the number of pupils carried 
in the various towns and cities, but the expenditures for transportation are 
given. Conditions vary widely in different towns, depending on whether 
the population is closely grouped in one small area or spread out over a 



large township. The latter condition prevails in Chelmsford. Over a" third 
of all the pupils are carried to school. In contrast Clinton reported last 
year no expenditures for transportation and Arlington less than $20. For 
the conditions existing in Chelmsford we believe transportation is being 
provided at a low cost, but it is above the average for the 83 towns in 
Group II. 

The total for Auxiliary Agencies, including the school nurse and 
school physician, was $10,774.84. 

New equipment, all to provide for increased enrollment in the High 
School, cost $248.15. 

Summarizing the above, school costs were : 

Administration $ 3.944 81 

Instruction 66,995.06 

Operation and Maintenance 17,443.10 

Auxiliary Agencies 10,774.84 

New Equipment 248.15 



Total s $ 99,405 96 

The town received in 1935 on school account the following amounts. 
The first item is, I understand, a credit extended the town by the state, and 
not a cash receipt. Under date of December 10, 1935, this letter was 
received : 

"Under the provisions of Part I of Chapter 70 of the General Laws, 
which provides state reimbursements on account of the employment of 
teachers, I have certified to the Commissioner of Corporations and Taxa- 
tions and to the Comptroller that the amount given below was due the 
Town of Chelmsford on November 20, 1935. Amount $15,400.68." 

(Signed) PAYSON SMITH, Comm'ssioner of Education. 



RECEIPTS BY THE TOWN ON SCHOOL ACCOUNT 

From the State as Rebate on Teachers' Salaries $ 15,400.68 

From the State for Tuition of State Wards 3,708 93 

From Other Towns for Tuition 1,189.06 

From Sale of Garage 25.00 

From Sale of Pump and Tank 10.00 

Total , $ 20,333.67 

Deducting these receipts from the total expenditures by the School 
Committee leaves as the part of the cost of the Chelmsford schools in 1935 
which was raised by local taxation $79,072 29. Since on the present valu- 
ation each $1000 of expenditures adds about 15 cents to the tax rate, the 
schools required about $12 of the 1935 rate of $35. 

On October 1st there were 79 state wards attending the Chelmsford 
schools, and ten pupils from other towns. 

10 



Also on October 1st there were 20 students from Chelmsford in Lowell 
Vocational School. The amount paid for tuition in 1935 was $2,740.04, 
and the rebate from the State amounted to $1,106.89, leaving the net cosl 
$1,039.15. This account is not handled through the School Department. 



TEACHERS 

During the year resignations were received from Miss Wells in the 
High School, Miss Mellen at Highland Avenue, Miss Murphy and Miss 
McTeague at Princeton Street, and Miss Peterson at Princeton Street 
requested leave of absence. Miss Ryan was transferred from South 
Chelmsford to the 5di and 6th grade room at Highland Avenue, and Miss 
Harrington from South Row to the 5th grade at Princeton Street. Miss 
Beth R. Hoffman, a graduate of Boston University, was elected to the 
position in the High School; Mr. Gerald Ivers, a graduate of Lowe 1 
Textile Institute, and Miss Ann Hehir were elected to the 8th grade and 
1st grade positions at Princeton Street; Miss Roberta Small to the upper 
grade position in South Chelmsford. Miss Hehir and Miss Small are 
graduates of Chelmsford High School and Lowell Teachers' College 
Miss Charlotte Lyons, a graduate of Plymouth Normal, with three years' 
experience, was elected to the South Row School, and later transferred to 
the McFarlin. The High School opened with increased enrol ment of about 
ten per cent, necessitating using a room in the McFarlin School and engag- 
ing another teacher. Miss Catherine Coughlan of Maynard, a graduate of 
Boston University, was secured. 

The morale of the teachers remained high during the years when their 
salaries were reduced. At the same time many of them were required to 
take on increased burdens because of overcrowding and they did this with- 
out complaint. While the average size of the grade schools has not been 
unduly large, a few rooms each year have been badly crowded This year 
two rooms at McFarlin School, three at East Chelmsford, and one at the 
Westlands have had over 40 pupils. The worst case is the 5th and 6th 
grade room at the Westlands, which normally seats 35 pupils. Chair desks 
have been crowded in and fill every foot of floor space in order to accom- 
modate the 46 pupils entitled to attend these grades. This building and 
the East Chelmsford building have been filled to capacity for several years 

Conditions in the High School have been discussed in all recent reports 
and on the floor of the Town Hall. It is useless to repeat details. Great 
credit is due the teachers for the splendid spirit they have shown in taking 
on unusually large classes in cramped quarters, and then by the earnestness 
of their endeavors maintaining the school's high standards It may well 
be asked how long these standards can be maintained, or how much longer 
the school can retain Grade A rating by the State, when every regulation 
regarding seating, ventilation, toilet facilities, etc., is being disregarded. 
Up to the present time the untiring work and loyalty of the teachers have 
served to overcome manv material deficiencies.

POPULATION AND SCHOOL ENROLLMENT 

The Town Report of 1930, pages 126-129, gives the population changes 
of Chelmsford from 1765 to 1925, with an estimate of probable future 
growth. Going back twenty years only, and adding the census figures for 
1930 and 1935, the table reads as follows : 

Increase in Five Years 

Year Population Number Per Cent 

1915 5,182 172 3.4 

1920 5,682 500 9.7 

1925 6,573 891 15.7 

1930 7,022 449 6.8

What the next ten years will show I do not assume to predict. 

Of greater importance in school matters than mere growth in popula- 
tion is the ratio that the number of people in town bears to the number of 
children in school, as shown below. 

Elementary High 

Year Population Schools School 

1915 5,182 887 148 

1920. 5,682 843 141 

1925 6,573 1122 194 

1930 _ 7,022 1182 305 

1935 7,435 1203 436 

In the twenty years, population increased 43 per cent, the elementary 
schools 35 per cent, but the High School increased 194 per cent. This is 
not peculiar to Chelmsford; it is true everywhere. The Comissioner of 
Education in Connecticut, Hon E. W. Butterfield, gives this formula for 
determining the size of a high school today. Take the size of the school 
a generation ago, add the per cent the population has grown in that time, 
and then double the result. The actual size of the school will be within 
five per cent of the result obtained by the formula. Try it with the figures 
given above. Mr. Butterfield speaks of this astounding increase in high 
school membership as "The New Fifty Per Cent," meaning the half of 
present day high school students who a generation ago would never have 
entered high school at all. Formerly pupils dropped out rapidly from the 
6th grade on ; now there is little drop till about the third year in high 
school. 

This influx of pupils has created problems everywhere. No town which 
built its high school before 1920 built large enough. Note the towns and 
cities which have either enlarged their high schools, or built new junior 
high schools to take care of larger 7th, 8th, and 9th grades. About 1920 
there began a thorough reorganization of high school courses of study, 
which is not yet complete. This "new fifty per cent" need different work 
than that which answered satisfactorily for the book-minded students of a 
generation ago. Practical courses are demanded, courses ■ which teach 
students how to do things, instead of teaching about things. These courses 

12 



need cost no more than the traditional ones, but they do require workshops 
and laboratories and teachers trained to teach practical arts instead of 
Latin and mathematics. Chelmsford thus far has not provide either the 
necessary rooms or modern courses. 

SAFETY EDUCATION 

A matter of prime importance to all citizens, especially to parents, is 
safety on the highways. Every effort is made by the teachers to impress 
on the children's minds the need of care at all times. The traffic patrols 
and the bus patrols organized in several of the schools have been valuable 
aids in getting children home safely. The bus drivers hold very respon- 
sible positions in this regard. They deserve commendation for the fact 
that no serious accidents have occurred on the busses. Several accidents, 
one fatal, have occurred while children were on the way to bus stops, or 
after leaving the bus. Parents have full responsibility till the children get 
to the busses in the morning, and after they leave the busses at night. The 
children who walk from their homes to school probably encounter more 
hazards than the groups who are transported. We endeavor to send them 
home by the safest routes, but they sometimes come to school along other 
ways. The crossings at Central Square, on Princeton Street, and on Lowell 
Road are under police protection at the times when the children go home 
at noon and night, but it is impossible to guard all crossings. The play- 
ground at East Chelmsford has been made safer by moving a fence to the 
roadside, a bit of E. R. A. work. The unfenced playground of the 
McFarlin School, along Lowell Road, is a place of danger. Children often 
race into the street in their play in spite of all caution that can be given, 
and in coming to school they cross everywhere. Fencing the side of the 
McFarlin grounds might save a life. 

Thanks are given to the many citizens and associations who have 
aided the schools in one way or another during 1935, such as the Parent- 
Teacher Associations, the Lions Club, the Police Department, the American 
Legion, the leaders of 4-H clubs and the Scouts, the High School students 
who aided in clerical work, cadet teachers from Lowell Teachers' College, 
etc. The services rendered voluntarily by these have been invaluable to 
the schools and in behalf of all the teachers I express sincere appreciation 
You, the members of the School Committee, have given of your best to the 
people of Chelmsford and to the pupils in school. Few know and appreci- 
ate the many hours of painstaking thought and attention which you and 
your predecessors in office have given to the many problems which come 
up for solution. For the teachers, pupils, and the general public I express 
sincere appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE S. WRIGHT,

REPORT OF HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL 

Chelmsford, Massachusetts, January 1, 1936. 

Air. George S. Wright, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts. 

My Dear Mr. Wright: 

It is with great pleasure that I submit my sixth annual report as 
principal of Chelmsford High School. 

The enrollment in September was 206 boys, 226 girls. Since Septem- 
ber, 9 boys have entered, 11 boys have left, 6 girls have entered, and 
11 girls have left making a total enrollment up to January 1, 1936, of 447. 
This is the largest enrollment in the history of the school. 

This year a room in the McFarlin School building has been used as a 
In ime room for 35 pupils. This room is also used as a recitation room each 
period of the day. One other room is also used as a recitation room one 
period each day. 

Athletics at Chelmsford High School are on a very firm foundation. 
School spirit is excellent. Chelmsford enjoys very friendly relationships 
with all schools which she meets on the court or field. Both pupils and 
players are taught that clean athletics and good sportsmanship are to be 
sought after rather than mere winning teams. Much help has been given 
by the various civic organizations of the town, police department, and loyal 
citizens, which has helped to keep athletics on the present high level at 
Chelmsford High School. 

This year a student council has been organized by the pupils, with the 
help of the principal and teachers. "We. the members of the Student Coun- 
cil of Chelmsford High School, in order to help teach the pupils of our 
school how to govern themselves better, have drawn up the constitution by 
which our council may be governed in a suitable manner." This preamble 
t't the constitution, writen by one of the members, explains the purpose of 
this student council. This group meets with the principal three times a 
week. Much good work has been done, and I am sure more is to follow by 
these pupils chosen by their classmates for this very important duty. 

The debating club and dramatic society, both new organizations in the 
school, are doing good work under the direction of members' of the faculty. 
Debates and short plays have been presented at assemblies and Parent- 
Teacher meetings. The objective of these two organizations is to teach 
pupils to think clearly and stand on their feet and express themselves cor- 
rectly. 

The publications committee, headed by our vice-principal, has charge of 
the editing of the Blue Moon and the Year Book. These publications entail 
a great deal of work. Much credit is due the teachers and pupils for the 
excellent work done in this field. 

The financial condition of the high school fund is shown in the follow- 
ing report made by Miss McCarthy, our vice-principal, who has charge of 
the department :

REPORT OF MUSIC SUPERVISOR 

Mr. George Wright, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts. 
Dear Sir : 

From one year to another the fundamentals of music teaching change 
very little. The essentials are always brought to the foreground : good tone, 
good enunciation, and rhythm. These are the most important, and should 
be exercised with every song that is sung by the pupils. Two and three 
part singing is developed in the fifth and sixth grades, and carried through 
with a greater degree of difficulty in the seventh and eighth grades. 



17 



This year rhythm games and folk dancing have been developed on a 
small scale. In the first and second grades singing games are taught and 
every child takes part if possible. This tends to develop confidence and 
poise that perhaps the child has not felt before, and it is with a great deal 
of pleasure that the less musical child finds his place with the more talented 
of his class. 

Some simple folk dances have been taught in the third and fourth 
grades, and the children love them. Most of the schools do not boast a 
play room, but a small group is taken to one corner of the room, if the 
dance is not a ring dance, and the rest of the class contribute the accom- 
paniment to the dance. 

In the High Schcol music classes meet twice a week for chorus and 
music appreciation. A notebook is kept and tests are given to determine 
more accurately the mark the pupils should receive. 

The orchestra is small this year and is made up of practically all new 
members. Four of five members graduated last June. However, we have 
six violins, one saxophone, one clarinet, two trumpets, two tenor banjos, 
and one trombone. 

This year a girls' rhythmic club was started, and about eighty girls re- 
sponded, but some have had to drop out because of studies and other ac- 
tivities. We have had about ten meetings this past year, and we have 
learned about six folk dances from Russia, Sweden, and Poland. Now that 
basketball practice has started, and we can no longer meet regularly in the 
gym, we are meeting in the High School and turning our attention to a 
capella singing. We hope to give a short musical comedy in the near 
future, together with choral singing, and folk dancing. 

Thanking every teacher for his or her co-operation, I am, 

Yours truly, 

CHARLOTTE L. HYDE.

beginning of the year; candidates for the football squad and girls going out 
for the basketball team were given complete physical examinations before 
the respective seasons opened. 

Children in the grammar schools have been weighed and measured ; 
after the underweights were checked, milk was suggested or given to those 
who needed it the most and who could not pay for it. In both the grammar 
and high schools eye and ear tests have been carried out, notices of defects 
being sent to the parents.

Dental work in the schools is taken care of by Dr. Ritter, who has 
been a most efficient dentist in the six and one-half years he has been with 
us. He is in the school every Wednesday from 9 A. M. to 3 P. M. 

The Parent-Teacher Associations in all parts of the town have gener- 
ously helped to correct dental defects of children who could not afford to 
pay. In the spring, when the High School Parent-Teacher Association dis- 
banded, nine dollars which was left in the treasury was given over to the 
dentist — three high school pupils had all their dental work done. The 
Parent-Teacher Association in the McFarlin School still sponsors the lunch 
room, serving hot stews, soup, cocoa, sandwiches, and milk at cost. The 
cost of free lunches given out amounted to $93.80. The lunch room in 
North Chelmsford, also under the direction of the Parent-Teacher Associ- 
ation there, serves about the same menu as does the McFarlin School lunch 
room. All the schools except the Westlands, where the children go home 
for lunch, have hot soups and cocoa at noon, while a great amount of milk 
is consumed in all schools at recess. This milk is delivered daily by Mr. 
Blood, Mr. Blaisdell, and Mr. Catherwood. Churches also in the Centre 
have for the past two years held collections for the benefit of children who 
cannot pay for milk at recess. 

The May Day campaign for healthy boys and girls saw much correc- 
tion, and greater than ever were the observations in all parts of the town. 
I must commend the teachers for their excellent co-operation in making this 
day a great success. 

When the Summer Round-up clinics were held early in June, the re- 
sponse was more than satisfactory, for more than half of the entering 
classes were examined by the school doctors. Many defects were corrected 
before the entering date ; I also wish to thank the parents for their co- 
operation in bringing the birth and vaccination certificates with them 
when their children came to school the first day — this greatly lessens the 
delay in getting the school year under way. 

Any child who is reported as having been in contact with a con- 
tagious disease is examined by a school physician and the nurse; any books 
also in contact are fumigated by the nurse and returned. In order to pro- 
tect other children pupils with colds are excluded for a short time. 

At Thanksgiving time the Girl Scouts made up three baskets and the 
Police Department gave me one to deliver. At Christmas the Police De- 
partment gave 21 baskets (also one at New Year's) ; the Lion's Club, 4; 
Boy Scouts in the Westlands, 1 ; Girl Scouts in the Westlands, 2 ; Parent- 
Teacher Association in North Chelmsford, 4; Boy Scouts in North Chelms- 
ford, 5; American Legion Auxiliary, North Chelmsford, 4; American Leg- 
ion in North Chelmsford, 2; American Legion in Centre, 2; American 
Legion Auxiliary in Centre, toys; Police Department, $10.00 for stockings 

20 



and toys, and money for coal and oil ; Unitarian Church, toys and a dona- 
tion from the candlelight service; the Garden Club, toys. At graduation 
both the Police Department and the Grange gave clothes to boys and girls 
who otherwise would not have graduated. 1 wish to take this opportunity 
to heartily thank each and every one of the above organizations for their 
hearty co-operation in relieving the many families helped in this town. 

For the sixth year my Health Club has sponsored a successful banquet 
for the football boys and guests; this year the club is exceptionally active 
and plans are in progress for a very busy season. 

Pupils Schicked in May who were immunized in October, 1934 : 

Negative 210 

Positive 11 

Total 221 

Seven of these eleven were re-immunized' in October, 1935 — the other 
four had left town. We gave Diphtheria toxoid to 195 children under 
twelve years of age, and toxin-anti-toxin to two teachers and seventeen 
children over twelve years of age; these will receive the Schick test in the 
spring, but the children under twelve will not require it. There has not 
been a case of Diphtheria in town in 1935. 

In October the Middlesex County conducted a school clinic at which 
pupils in the seventh, ninth, and eleventh grades were given the tubercu- 
losis test. Twelve children in lower grades who were exposed to tubercu- 
losis were also tested and held over to another year to be X-rayed and ex- 
amined as observation cases. 

Children Tested 166 

Children X-rayed 63 

Children Referred for Examination 13 

Deferred Case 1 

There were ten pupils who have been X-rayed and examined each year 
by Dr. Martin, of the Department of Public Health, who conducts the 
clinic. All have improved to such an extent that the doctors do not con- 
sider it necessary for them to return another year for examination. 

Dr. Archibald, of the Department of Public Health, visited many times 
during the year to discuss health conditions in the town. 

In closing I would like to express my appreciation to you, Mr. Wright, 
for your excellent advice and guidance in the school health work ; to the 
school physicians, Dr. Varney, Dr. Scoboria, and Dr. Latham, our new 
physician ; to the teachers and parents for their loyal support ; and to the 
various town organizations for faithful service and sincere co-operation in 
the nealth program.
